If the arrival of digital technology has revolutionized the photographic practices, Thomas Salva was able to take this turn with philosophy.


Adolescent, the young Thomas learns the techniques in an amateur film club near Cherbourg. In the family home, Thomas built a laboratory of odds and ends and tries to black and white prints. Therefore the sensations of "chemistry", the "touch", the "black" would not leave him.


In 2007, then aged 23, Thomas leaves valedictorian at the Ecole des Gobelins in Paris. Digital retouching, photography studio, the discovery of a practice in the "pixels" is rough but allows the photographer to define his style: his approach, digital or silver print, based on the same minimalist aesthetic, inspired by the work on film and alternative methods.
